presidential candidate mitt romney signed into law in 2006 when he was governor of massachusetts from this morning's "washington journal." >> host: a reporter of the "boston herald" talking about the health care bill mitt romney signed in 2006. thank you for joining us. >> guest: good morning. >> host: give us the basics, first of all, back in time to the debate happening in massachusetts. what was governor romney's role in getting the health care law pushed and signed? was he the one who initiated the process? >> guest: it was a massive bipartisan effort, involved politicians, business leaders, small business owners, but he was the governor at the time, and he was the one who effectively signed it into law, and as a backdrop, which probably everybody here knows pretty well, we, as a nation, are dealing with ever increasing health care costs, and as the health care costs go up, we're also dealing with a large number of people who do not have insurance, and the massachusetts health reform law was designed to tackle both, but just the insurance part of it first. i can get into it in mor

president. and then for governor romney, he's only been coming -- is a thin resume for a presidential candidate in the sense that one term governor and a typical state where he had no, you, almost no support in the legislature didn't really run on much of an agenda, change things and messages, take over for republican governors. is the toshiba was a health care bill which i just seem like a good idea at the time to him. so i don't think it's the right situation to the olympics is about a copper by. business i agree with john isn't culpable. in a funny way it harder to anticipate to me at least what they're white house administration will look like in 2013. that it may would normally be the case if a bob dole or jon mccain or bill clinton, these are people of been in office a long time either innocent or governorship, i think one had a sense of how their strengths and weaknesses. i'm not sure either case you that we now. and the question is i suppose the campaign, what have we learned from the campaigns. i'll think about that for a minute and let bart -- i think it is an interesting qu

, and that is to discuss and highlight the impact of minorities and women on the 2012 presidential and legislative elections. tonight's inaugural event is being held before the first presidential debate between president barack obama and governor mitt romney. tonight's town hall meeting provides us with a unique and strategic opportunity to put our important and crucial minority vote front and center because this is about us, our families, our communities. it's about our future. most of you know that about 35 states have reportedly passed measures that would restrict the right to vote, particularly among black and hispanic voters. probably many of you have heard today the state of pennsylvania struck down. so these measures could far as many as 5 million potential voters in casting your vote on who will lead the country for the next four years. the longer-term effect of this could severely impact how our country moves forward. the impact could be just as significant as the well-known brown v. board of education. the landmark supreme court case in which they declared the state law establishing sepa

the c-span channels. >> he was presidential. i think you just never know what positions governor romney is going to come with your gmail, the centerpiece of their economic policies so far has been the tax cut and last night we found out he doesn't have a fight for a tax cut and i guess he outsource that to china. it's hard to figure out what governor romney's position is on a number of issues. but i think as time goes on, meaning days, this can become pretty clear that governor romney has even changed or doesn't remember. i think at the end of the day we have two more debates coming up. i feel real good about it. >> what is your debate? >> my own debate? all debates are tough. you're up there and you're able to say -- i was watching the debate last night you can get there and say what it do not ms and you hear people say not. it's not saying that famous 320, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70 million people. all debates are tough, but i'm looking forward to it. the thing about congressman ryan is he has been straightforward up till now. all the significant changes he wants to make. we have a fundamenta

that the obama administration has declined to defend, the defense of marriage act. and president romney might well decide that he would defend the constitutionality of the statute, but it does not seem that that kind of social conservative question has a lot of civilians in something like a presidential debate. i think it will, other than health care, i can't see much happening. >> i think it -- i think it will not happen. and here's why. no major national political figure has attacked affirmative-action publicly since 1996 or four. it is kind of remarkable. the republicans to during the 90's for a while we're seeing some political profit in attacking affirmative action given the poll's don't do anymore. the democrats said maybe it's time to stop these racial preferences. the democratic council was inching down that road. but that's all gone. and i have spoken to republican politicians. why is that? and the answer was, we get so demonized if we ever raised voices against affirmative action. it's just not worth the cost, not worth the hassle. i think part of it, ironically, was there was an in
